|Subject: Re: Barcelona Hotels|
the Continental Palacete has a great location, Rambla de Catalunya, parallel to the Passeig de Gracia. I like it much more than the location of their sister hotel, down in the Rambla. You can find the big Gaudi buildings around the corner in Passeig de Gracia, and great communications down in the Plaza de Catalunya.
A bit down the hotel, once you cross the Gran Via, there is a cafe called La Tramoia. Their iberic ham bocadillos are very, very good, and they do a decent menu. In Ronda de la Universitat you will find a Frescco restaurant. Itīs a local chain of self-service restaurants founded by a group of former spanish olympic team members. Itīs very handy if you want to have dinner early or if you fancy something healthy (great salads, fruit, pasta ...).
